First layout in how long?

a while....couldn't tell you exactly how long but thought I would start it off with a kit I bought quite a while ago from Fred the Needle - a Gillian Lester design - love your work Gill!  Got a tad frustrated at trying to make the frame go around all the flowers but eventually got it to sit still long enough to whack some tape on it before it moved again. Another round of frustration to get the pleated paper to stick to the chipboard dress makers stand - and then the ribbon over the top - tried my best..lol... 12.30am finish and ta da!!!!  Thinking I might put this one in one of my scrapbook frames ....only challenge now is to convince Peter to put them on the wall instead of the football jerseys...a mighty task in itself! 

Scrapping some old pics of Brock tonight so will post when I finish.

About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to my work in progress....I am a mum of two very outgoing children who keep me on my feet all day. A wife to a man who works hard for our family and doesn't like my craft at all (lol) and a dedicated yet part time Admin Assistant for a charity organisation. I have a love for motorbike riding as well as craft and love to shop - who doesn't right?! Back onto craft - craft in general has been a BIG part of my life for so many years I couldn't possibly tell you when it all first started. Around 2008 I fell in love with Papercrafting, of all forms, off the page, scrapbooking and card making and stamping (my fave). Going from just fun to running my own party plan business with Kaszazz and then back to "just for fun". I hope you enjoy the journey with me as I experiment with techniques, colours and product and learn with me also as I inevitably make mistakes and disasters....all in good fun. Enjoy!!
